No zooming with landscape mode

  • Hello,

    my Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.4 Pro (Android 4.4) unfortunately does not zooming in Landscape mode. When I double-click with the stylus, then draw, nothing happens. In Portrait mode it works fine. Is this bug known?

  • Are you able to use pinch-to-zoom any? Also what webpages are you seeing this problem on?

  • Yes, pinch-to-zoom works fine. All webpages couldn't be zoomed with the other method in landscape mode.

  • Do you see this problem in both Off-Road and normal modes? Sorry for the lack of replies. I haven't been here in a week.

  • I guess it's because it's already 100% in landscape mode.

    I have a 360 DPI Tab Pro too, and, although razorsharp, text is often too small.

    I prefer to raise the devicePixelRatio, but how?

    And what happened to userCSS, why isn't that supported anymore in browsers? I need a bigger font on this tablet on most pages.

    Actually Opera Classic (FTP) is performing better here, because it could actually raise devicePixelRatio up to three. Although the skin is super tiny ;)

    I still think Opera has nearly lost as much as it has gained, it certainly lost a lot of features/custom-ability.

  • On Nexus 4 running Android 4.4.4.

    Zooming by double tap and zooming by single tap and dragging finger no longer works. Zooming by two finger pinch still works as expected but much less convenient on phone (as in one handed vs two).

    That feature is why I use Opera. My eyes are bad and effective reflow is crucial.

  • On a similar note, I am having trouble finding the archive for older versions so I can regress until this issue is addressed. Where is it?

  • Thank you for your quick reply. Just noticed that google.com sidebar may be broken worse than before. I can only attribute that to Google taking you guys seriously and ensuring that Google.com isn't done till Opera doesnt work. ;-)
